Casino Any idea why Dublinbet closed most of their baccarat tables?

    Dublinbet had 10 live speed baccarat tables (table A to J) and now they only have 2 (A & B); see thumbnail of the tables below.

    It seems they closed their tables in Georgia and kept their tables in Latvia only. Or is it because of Chinese high rollers (see screencaps below)?

    Having many tables available was very helpful. If a table doesn't go your way, you simply change table. But now the choice is very limited.

    Or could it be related to the coronavirus? Or is it simply a financial decision (less tables but higher profitability).
    I'd like to have the opinion of experienced members.

    Could be any of the above. You get enough bored whales fooling around in one place and they definitely could turn your lights out if they get a lucky run at the higher limit tables.

    Who knows, could just be tech problems or other less exciting reasons.

    It is financial.

    If you want an answer to a question just follow the money.

    Could be any reason, bigger distance between staff, safety, doubt it's money, they make too much. It's also not Dublinbet, it's Evolution gaming.

    You're right! I Googled "Evolution gaming" and found several articles about this situation.

    Here's a quote from calvinayre(dot)com
    Evolution Gaming temporarily shuts Georgian live casino studio

    According to the article, the fate of Evolution's main site in Latvia remains uncertain.
    How will I get my Baccarat fix (and money) if the Latvia studio closes too? :(

    You are right...again ;)

    For the record, employees from the Georgian studio went on strike in August 2019 "for higher wages and better working conditions". At the time, "salaries were as low as GEL400 (US$137) per month for ‘shufflers’ while the actual dealers make a little more. Average salaries in Tbilisi, where Evolution’s studio is located, are around GEL1000."

    Meanwhile, "Evolution’s Q2 revenue was up 45% year-on-year to €85.7m, while earnings rose 63% to €42.7m and profit jumped 72% to €34.5m."

    I wonder how the dealers can afford to buy makeup with such low salaries. o_O

    That is interesting, the make-up is probably supplied, I did notice the same nice ear-rings being circulated between the girls on different weekends. Those wages wouldn't surprise me, when out any gambling establishment not exploit it's workforce.

    I'm interested. May I ask you which site this is exactly (in PM's if inserting a link violates the rules).
